  • Most people think that they do know how to screenshot Android. But actually, they don’t, at least not all the possible methods available out there. There is a common case that people want a screenshot, but the information just swifts away, such as Facebook stories, video clips, or games. The operation is quite cumbersome when you have to press two buttons at the same time.

    How To Screenshot With Android’s Hardware
    It is the traditional method to capture a screen on Android regardless of your phone models; it is easy to remember but quite frustrating. Open the picture or video you want to capture first, then press the “Power” and “Volume down” buttons at once.

    The position of these two buttons can vary depending on the brand and model of your device. Generally, they lie on the top right edge of most Android gears.

    But another placement includes the “Power” button on the right side and the “Volume Down” button on the left of your phone.

    The tricky thing about how to screenshot from Android is how long you hold these buttons to take a screenshot. It would become rather cumbersome if you are bad at timing. You’ll find yourself staring at your phone and waiting for nothing. Then you have to repeat those actions.

    Tip: Particularly, after you hold the two buttons on a Samsung galaxy, a “Smart capture” appears at the bottom of the screen. It will provide basic choices for your screenshot, such as a thumbnail or a share.

    How To Screenshot In Android Using Quick Settings
    Starting at Android version 7.0, Google allows users to intervene more in the Quick Settings area. It is where we can get quick access to system settings by swiping down from the top edge.

    Depending on your device and the number of “Quick Settings” you’re using, there can be several pages of tiles in the expanded version of the menu. You can swipe left or right to navigate the different pages of your Android “Quick Settings” menu.

    We suggest that you rearrange the shutter button away from the first page; it is a useful button, and you will want to find it as quickly as possible.

    In case you can’t find the “Screenshot” button on the “Quick Settings” menu. Tapping on the “Settings” symbol, normally on the right corner, will provide you more options, including the “Screenshot.”

    How To Screenshot On Android Phones By Swiping The Screen
    Notice: This feature is not built in some Android devices, so check the information before applying it.

    Next is one of our favorite methods on the list. Compared to the two methods above, this requires you to perform only one action. However, you have to activate it first.

    You need to tap on “Settings,” scroll down and choose “Advanced features.” Then, a screen will be full of many options; find “Motions and gestures.” Now, just turn “Palm swipe to capture” on, then you can use this feature.

    How To Screenshot An Android Device With Bixby
    Bixby is a virtual assistant of Samsung. Like Apple’s Siri or Microsoft’s Cortana, Bixby is a built-in function of every Android device.

    After activating the Bixby, access the screen you like to snap. Press and hold the Bixby button to turn on Bixby’s voice, then say, “Take a screenshot.” Bixby will follow your command right away.

    Bixby saves the screenshot to the Gallery automatically, then you are free to share or edit the image.

    How To Screenshot From Android With Third-party Apps
    The two popular apps from third parties that we recommend are AZ Screen recorder and Screenshot touch. Both of them can provide you with many post-shot functions.

    For instance, the AZ Screen recorder enables you to snap the screen, record it, and edit the videos. With this dedicated app, you’re also able to stream your screen on social media platforms.

    Thanks to the in-app video editor, you can trim videos, change background music, or add subtitles, etc.

    And Screenshot Touch, compatible with Android 5.0 or higher, save your screenshots into as many folders as you want. You can crop, edit, and draw on the screenshots directly.

    It also provides the mp4 format of the screenshot. Then, you can adjust the frame rate, audio, and bitrate of it.

  • Are you wondering about how to screenshot on windows? Then, the 8 methods below will be of immense help to you, and you can have your desired pictures instantly.

    You are surfing the internet and see something interesting that you want to save for viewing later, but you don’t know how to capture the screen. It will be very frustrating, and you may miss an important piece of information to help you work or study.

    8 Ways To Screenshot On Windows
    The below are the 8 techniques that show you how to take a screenshot on windows. We can be sure that they will help you to save your desired pictures.

    Print Screen
    Are you wondering about how to screenshot on windows 10 in a simple way? The Print Screen function is the answer. All you need to do is to press the PrtScn on the upper-right side of your keyboard. Now, you can have a photo of the entire screen.

    Your clipboard will save the photo. If you want to use the picture, paste it into any programs which offer inserting pictures, including Paint and Microsoft Word.

    Alt + Print Screen
    Another similar way is using the combination of Alt and Print Screen. When you want to capture the active window that you are working on, you can press Alt + Print Screen. It will snap the current Window and copy the shot to the clipboard. You would use another program such as paint to open it.

    Windows key + Print Screen
    Finding the process above complicated and want something simpler? Don’t hesitate to choose this feature. To take a photo of the whole screen and save it automatically, you need to tap the Window Key + Print Screen key. The screen goes to dim, and to open the file, you just need to go to the Pictures > Screenshots folder.

    Snip & Sketch tool
    The Snip and Sketch tool is the easiest way to access, share, and annotate your screen photo. And using the keyboard shortcut Windows Key + Shift + S is the best option for you to call up the function.

    This action will dim the screen, and users can find a menu appearing at the top of their computer. It will let you choose from different screenshot types, including rectangular, Window, freeform, and full-screen snips.

    After you take the photo, it will go to your clipboard and show you a notification momentarily in the lower right corner. You can press it to open the application and annotate, share, or save the picture.

    If you open the App in the first place from the Search menu, you will see the Snip & Sketch tool window in place of the toolbar. Users can click on the New button in the upper-left to capture a new picture. It is an extra step, but you can delay the screenshot for 3 or 10 seconds, which allows you to go to the desired screen.

    Snipping Tool
    There is no need to worry about screenshots even when using the older Windows version with fewer features. Let us show you how to screenshot on windows 7.

    Although the Snip & Sketch is way better than this function, it is still possible to use the old function Snipping Tool available on Windows 9, 8, 7, and Vista. However, Window has warned that they are removing the feature.

    You must find the tool via the search bar. Use the Mode bottom to choose the types of screenshot you want, and click the new bottom to take a shot.

    Users can also delay the screenshot through the Delay function. Once you take the shot, it will open in a new window, and you can easily save, share or annotate the picture with Microsoft Outlook.

  • Snapping photos of your screen using phones is the only answer when being asked about how to screenshot on PC? Things are about to change! Our guide on how to screenshot on PC will instruct you to handle the job in the simplest and most effective way through 6 comprehensive methods.

    How To Screenshot On Pc – 5 Quick Ways
    So, how to do the screenshot on PC?

    One thing is for sure, it is not as complex as you expect it to be. You do not even have to be tech-savvy or try to master any particular skill to get started. In fact, these 5 tricks alone can have you well-covered no matter what operating system your PC runs on.

    Print Screen
    How to screenshot on a PC with the print screen? Using its namesake right on the keyboard, what else? It is shortened into ‘PrtSc’ from ‘Print Screen’, in case you have a hard time telling it apart from the rest.

    What it does is pretty obvious from the name, to capture the entirety of your display. But simply holding down the button would not do the trick. You have to combine it with a series of other actions to have the image ready.

    Print Screen only: Tap this button once, and your PC’s system will immediately copy the whole screen. But the image will go straight to the clipboard, so you need to paste it on a different tool for further editing and saving (like Paint)
    Print Screen + Alt: This is another way to take the full PC screenshot. The only part that differentiates the command from the first one is that it only captures the windows you are currently select, not the whole screen
    (Imagine having both Google Chrome and Microsoft Words running parallel to each other even though your focus is on the latter only. Hitting this combination of key snap nothing else but its image)

    Window + Print Screen: Use both these keys at once, and you can directly save the screenshot without an image editor tool. The whole display will even go darker for a second as a sign that the image is already taken.
    But it does not let you decide the storage location, so you need to fetch the saved images from the Screenshot file in the Picture section later on.

    Snip and Sketch
    Snip and sketch is a screenshot utility built into all PCs operating on Windows 10, and you only need the Windows + Shift + S to activate it. You can have it grab certain parts of the screen instead of the whole big display, which is why the function is highly favored these days.

    Once calling up this fused application, your screen will darken, and you have to drag a rectangle across sections you want to save, which appear in the usual brightness rate for you to track with ease.

    You can swap between this and the active window capture command, snap the full screen, or go free-from by selecting the available options. After that, just customize the image in the new pop-up dashboard, then save it when you are satisfied. The extra step of copying and pasting won’t be there to bother you!

    Snipping tool
    Snipping tool, is the non-upgraded version of Snip and Sketch that can be found in all PCs. But in reality, its target users are any operating system older than the Windows 10. Despite being an old-school choice since the conception of Windows Vista, it still plays the role of a decent screenshot app up to this point.

    All the features are practically the same as what you have for a Windows 10 device. But its dashboard is more on the cumbersome side, and you will have to go through some mode modifications to be able to finish a screenshot. (Not so convenient for regular screenshot snappers, if you ask us)
